Subject: Keith's Organ Playing on Black-Throated Wind
An earlier reviewer asked, "Is Keith playing an organ during this second set jam?"

I was wondering the same thing when I heard this show on the Today in Grateful Dead History on 10/23/15 (42nd anniversary of the show). I mean, it is definitely an organ, and since I can pick up only one keyboardist, it must have been Keith playing.

I've listened to countless hours of GD music over the past nearly 40 years, and I can't think of any other show where Keith played organ like that. Some of his June 1974 Fender Rhodes playing has an organlike sound, but not like 10/23/73.

This is one of the many reasons I love this music so much. After all this time it continues to amaze me and move me (emotionally and physically), and I continue to discover things in the music.

Subject: Keith On Organ??
Is Keith playing an organ during this second set jam? I've never heard him play one before with the exception of his first show or two back in '71. Casey Jones nearly erupts into a riot and features memorable lines like:
"Do you want to hear music, or do you want to get punched?" and:
"Hey man, don't beat on our audience!"

The Casey Jones is hillarious! I love Phil's reaction to the guard.

Subject: The Bill & Keith show
A typically mind-massaging, creatively jammed show from the period. Of note here:

1. Bill's drums are loud on this tape, making this the best single place other than 8/1/73 to hear the full range of his amazing 1973 jazzy work. Keith also shines.

2. This is the show with the "interrupted" first encore. Apparrently the bouncers were harrassing the fans, irking the band considerably. It's kinda funny on tape, imagining an enraged Kreutzman jumping out from behind the kit mid-song to tackle an overzealous security guard. Which, rumor has it, is exactly what happened.

You won't be dissappointed with this if you like the late '73 jazz space.

Subject: Kieth's keyboards!
Keith uses an organ (something I have not heard elsewhere) in this Truckin', sounding like Pigpen on the American Beauty version of this song. This nice touch brings a bit of primal(69-70) Dead flavor to this song and the subsequent jamming in an energetic Other One. The WRS is great too!
